Dornier Do-27 is an aircraft add-on for Microsoft Flight Simulator 2004 and Microsoft Flight Simulator X. The package was originally sold in separate download versions only, but is here combined in one retail package.
The Dornier Do-27 was the first serially produced civilian aircraft in Germany after WW2, and two models; A1 & B1 are included, in several paints based on actual aircraft individuals, with some extra liveries available from the publishers website. One can operate the aircraft in 'simple' mode (e.g. jump in and fly) or in a more complex Pro-mode, requiring the pilot to be fully familiar with the aircraft; for which purpose a detailed Pilots Operation Handbook is included, both in German (paper & PDF) and English (PDF).
The aircraft operation is closely modeled on the original, to include damage modelling for e.g. engine mishandling, and rough landings. Once damaged, the aircraft needs to be taken through a repair checklist before one can fly it again. Apart from normal flying around, one can also simulate parachute jumper operations, for which purpose extra passengers and a special door opening/closing method is used. Engine cowls open/close, doors open/close/lock, and avionics can break/are unreliable depending on the mode used. The cockpit is both in 2D and virtual 3D, with working switches.
